As a university-based business school, we have two main and complementary duties to the community: Research and Teaching.
Our research drives theory and influences practice. We use it to train students to be capable, responsible economic leaders and entrepreneurs and to provide sound advice to organizations and policy makers.
As a Swiss public and cantonal institution, we provide local students and professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to play a leading role in today’s globalized economy. We also train a considerable number of talented students and professionals from abroad, predominantly from Europe, thereby sustaining Switzerland’s and our canton’s long-standing tradition as a knowledge center of international influence and reputation.
